Yep, that’s the problem! It’s rather tough filling the water tank or getting to the batteries with the couch bottom being sooo heavy! Wrecking my back in the process tends to really “ cut down” on the Fun part of
using my van for it’s intended purposes!

Wanderers,
Yes indeed, let’s hope so. What a shame we can’t all get together for a “ round table” session or two and work through this! There HAS to be a way to do it, that will improve the situation for all of us somewhat disabled folk. So far the “ Cot” plan seems like the best solution to me, especially an aluminum version.
I just need to find out where to get one for my ( dream) specs! Maybe just buy one and get it altered?

By the way, I found the fold-up 3-way mattresses on Amazon ( naturally); and it comes in many sizes and depths (2” to 6” last time I checked). All of them fold up into at least 3 connected pieces. Having slept on an air-bed with a 2 or 3 inch memory foam mattress on top, I realized it was amazingly comfortable, so I think it would work equally well on top of a cot ( anything with some “ give” to it)!

Gee, that’d be great, but as I live ( literally) in the middle of nowhere, just finding one would likely be a bit tough....much less getting it installed! Same problem I am having with pretty much everything I am trying to do- or get done. Nearest stores etc. are at least an hour away.....in every direction!
